Cedar Waxwing

ExclusiveCedar Waxwing

Each year I am blessed by the migration of the Cedar Waxwing, Bombycilla cedrorum through my area of the country. Their visits are timed almost perfectly with the arrival of the fruiting trees and bushes.  These delightful birds will stay in the area for several months basically as long as the fruit holds out. See my gallery and read more on these birds.

Carolina Wren

When you spot the Wren it looks to be rather plain but is a Whitney Houston of birds song wise; mostly brown with some lighter brown and speckles on the wings. The Wren is commonly found over nearly the entire Western Hemisphere. Listen for its rush-and-jumble song in summer and you’ll find this species zipping through shrubs and low tree branches, snatching at insects. Wrens will will accept and use man made nest boxes.

Early Arrival Grey Gnat Catcher

ExclusiveEarly Arrival Grey Gnat Catcher

This tiny bird smaller than a sparrow was  very busy jumping from branch to branch in hunt of small insects to eat. He was so quick, I had a very difficult time capturing a usable sharp image not to mention the distance and size of the bird, with patience I was able to acquire a few images.  Although this bird species looks similar to a pygmy nuthatch but is a Blue Gray Gnat Catcher. The Gnat Catcher has an expanded breeding range through the northeast and now is seen up the East Coast into lower New Hampshire, and expansion may be continuing. Enjoy this fine bird this spring & summer season.

Bird and Wildlife Photography

ExclusiveBird and Wildlife Photography

I enjoy outdoor wildlife and bird photography and is one aspect of photography that makes it all worthwhile - the enjoyment of going out in nature to enjoy.  When I go out I sometimes set a goal to acquire a few "good" photos, be it for personal use or posting to your blog or simply bragging rights. As every photographer knows, you don't  always come home with your objectives, but you will come home more knowledgeable than before.
